How to create a frame-based menu?

Hi,

I want to create a frame-based menu like the "frame demo": when the cursor is over the menu in the top frame, the submenu will show up in another frame. How can I do this? How to config the js file? Can anyone help me?

Thanks

Qing

i've wasted the past 4 hours trying to get this primitive app to work with frames. and of course, failed. there aren't any problems with a single window, but as soon as frames are involved the whole things screws up. The large frame hides the menu that comes up, making it worthless. Having read through all of the posts her, looked desperately for a usable FAQ, and checked the test html's source for any info, I am resigned to go look somewhere else for a usable navigation system.
At least it was fast loading though. Yay. /one/ good thing.

Of course it will depend on how you have been using the menu.

I suppose the demo at <a href=http://www.milonic.co.uk/menu/frames>http://www.milonic.co.uk/menu/frames</a> is a little primitive and there is still much work to be done but it does work.

Also the download is at <a href=http://www.milonic.co.uk/menu/frames/frames.zip>http://www.milonic.co.uk/menu/frames/frames.zip</a> should give you more of an insight.

You'll really need to try to do this first. Start by copying the files from the frames demo on our site. If you encounter problems you can post with a specific issue. Be aware the frames implementation is limited and has it's issues.

i have used the frame version, and have a problem.
when the first page loads, and click on a link (we will call it pg2) that is in diffrent folder and then goto another link (pg3) theat is on the same folder, i get a blank page, and the menu no longer works.

if i reverse the order, (pg3, which now works, then pg2) the same thing happens
what am i doing wrong??

ilduce (il duce was Mussolini's title):

Try selecting pg 2 twice or 3 times in a row. Does it reload each time or does the problem only occur with the pg2 and pg 3 combo?

By blank page I assume you mean no page? What does the URL locator show has loaded? mfurf

If change index.htm in http://www.milonic.co.uk/menu/frames/frames.zip
to <html><head><title>Frames Test</title></head>
<frameset rows="26,*" >
<frame name="menuframe" scrolling="no" target="main" src="frames_header.htm">
<frame name="main" src="bottom.htm" >
<noframes>
<p>This page uses frames, but your browser doesn't support them.</p>
</noframes> </frameset></html>

and add bottom.html as
html><head><title>Frames Test</title></head>
<frameset cols="50,*" >
<frame name="left" scrolling="no" target="main" src="frames_side.htm">
<frame name="main" src="frames_body.htm" >
<noframes>
<p>This page uses frames, but your browser doesn't support them.</p>
</noframes> </frameset></html>

The milonic menu won't wok any more.
No matter how you change "sourceframe" in frames_side_array.js and frames_header_array.js the top menu won't work at all.
Probably, it's the limitation that Milonic implementation that it won't work in complex frame situation. It will only work in the primitive frame situation.

Any suggestion of enchancement?
